Mazatlan is a wonderful, welcoming place and the Malecon is probably visited by all visitors. It has multiple restaurants and shopping areas right off it. There are musicians, families, wonderful seaside views, and just about anything you could want. And it is a safe area for families and in the evening.

This a good place to spend a few hours walking around. Plazas, markets, churches, restaurants, theater, old architecture, etc. You can download a self guided tour or pay for a guided tour.

The Malecon in Mazatlan is very long, so if you want to walk the length of it give yourself some time. The view over the ocean is superior and unobstructed. I think the one thing that really was impressed upon me here though was the other side of the road and the poverty in Mazatlan. Many shops were empty and... More

Good trip to see the city, nice walking, shopping and patios. Quaint way of seeing the older section of Mazatlan. We were there during Carnival so much going on along with tourists and locals.

We walked the entire malecon so that we could take pictures of the monuments and the statues for carnival. The sidewalk is very wide and level (quite unlike most of mazatlan's sidewalks). A great place to watch the waves and people. Be sure to cross the street near the fisherman's monument and take you photo by the new big block... More

Take some time and stroll along this beautiful area--sunset is especially spectacular. I have only been there in Feb. (when there weren't crowds as in this picture).

Nice to start the day with a walk/run down the Malecon. If you go to the sign for the Aquario and back it's about 3 miles. Very sunny and comfortable at 8 or 9:00 in the morning. It gets the body moving and ready for breakfast upon your return.

Awesome walk or drive along Mexico's premier boardwalk. Check out the cliff divers and a host of interesting statues and vendors
